The spirit of the original story is maintained while being abridged and told in a more modern Englis

Given the legend of Dracula as portrayed in the movies, comic books and other venues, I firmly believe that all people would be served by reading the original story by Bram Stoker. It is a classic dark tale of legend and superstition, which ironically, began with the life of a real Count known to history as Vlad the Impaler. This book, an abridged version written in a more modern English style, is the next best read to the original. From it, the reader can acquire the sense of the classic, the combination of terror with descriptions of the human Slovaks and Gypsies who worked for Dracula and allowed him to survive in human society. I have read the original Stoker book several times and have always preferred it to the simplistic caricatures of the Dracula movies. While this book is not as good as the original, it retains the spirit of the original far better than any movie possibly could.

A FAST READ, I REALLY LIKE IT AND IT WAS A CLASSIC!

THERE ARE MORE IN THE CLASSIC START SERIES, I WANT THEM ALL! 20,OOO LEAGUES WAS ANOTHER GOOD ONE, SPEAKING OF BOYS....
